everybody, including romney who became a moderate much too late to get that nomination. >> it is still striking. you have some 70% in the exit polls who believe the economy is in bad shape, 52% who feel like the country is off on the wrong direction. a lot of opposition thought to president obama and his policies and yet he prevails because of a coalition ever expanding that believes in a certain role for government, bob, that is opposed to where the republicans would like to take it. >> i think the big picture here is that president obama has got to deliver on the big issue, which is fixing the financial house of the u.s. federal government, it is in disarray, not just the fiscal cliff but $16 trillion in ious out in the world. in a couple of months, in february or march, they are going to have to renegotiate borrowing authority for another trillion or two dollars and if the president can fix and put us on some sort of path of restoration for the economy, that is a pay juv for everyone in the community you not just his base. he has got to think much more broadly, the job of the presid
to the donors. they lied to the base. they lied to everybody about how romney was ahead. >> now, victoria, can these more moderate voices at least moderate compared to the tea party, can they gain traction and influence in the republican party? >> i believe there will, but it will be a long road because these moderates are very frustrated. not only did they lose this election, because they also lost a huge business investment. there's millions of dollars thrown down the drain and their confidence in the establishment in letting the tea party take the lead is going to start shortening and we'll see them take a tighter and teeter rein in terms of the party leadership. because ultimately they're the ones with the cash. >> and see, dana, i thinkleader. because ultimately they're the ones with the cash. >> and see, dana, i thinkin ter leadership. because ultimately they're the ones with the cash. >> and see, dana, i think touches on another point because what's interesting is how badly the gop's internal polling was. romney campaign expected to win colorado, florida and virginia. it expected to be
for some time. you can only, looking back, see those 20 debates that bushed everybody, including romney who became a moderate much too late to get that nomination. >> it is still striking. you have some 70% in the exit polls who believe the economy is in bad shape, 52% who feel like the country is off on the wrong direction. a lot of opposition thought to president obama and his policies and yet he prevails because of a coalition ever expanding that believes in a certain role for government, bob, that is opposed to where the republicans would like to take it. >> i think the big picture here is that president obama has got to deliver on the big issue, which is fixing the financial house of the u.s. federal government, it is in disarray, not just the fiscal cliff but $16 trillion in ious out in the world. in a couple of months, in february or march, they are going to have to renegotiate borrowing authority for another trillion or two dollars and if the president can fix and put us on some sort of path of restoration for the economy, that is a pay juv for everyone in the community you not just
did think that romney was certain to win because everybody they knew supported him and opposed obama. it's like the flip side of the old unfair joke about pauline kael who said, "how could nixon win in '72? everybody i know voted for mcgovern." apparently, she never actually said that. but we know the attitude it exemplifies. the right is now in that bubble. everybody they know hates obama. so how could all these people be voting for obama? >> in the hours leading up to the election, fox news devoted itself to speculation about romney's win. newt gingrich and others were talking about how big the romney landslide was going to be. gingrich thought it would be 300 electoral votes at least. >> i believe the minimum result will be 53-47 romney, over 300 electoral votes, and the republicans will pick up the senate. >> so are you suggesting that they, a conservative propaganda machine, was blindsided by its own ideology? >> i think that is so. and i think we may have seen a tipping point in this election because in all previous elections, notably the 2010 midterms, we were impressed by the
. romney and ryan, everybody the republican party his followers because they don't literally they have an alternate reality. i'm curious how people feel about fox news and rush and all those people really having misled them, literally they're stunned. a piece sums it up. mr. obama continues to press his point that he would allow taxes to rice on the rich. election was a wake up call for many members. everyone they knew hated obama. everyone agreed exactly with them and then we lost. if you only talk to people has agree with you. we listen to both sides. >> absolutely. i watched six hours of fox news a day. >> stephanie: you don't have to. other districts see no reason to give in even if the nation as a whole sided with the president on taxes. so you're still going to have some of those people. a lot of them were gerrymandered in. the house was able to redistrict so that a lot of them, they couldn't lose. >> their big wins in 2010 allowed them to control the gerrymandering. >> stephanie: so that will be fun. >> a good article about how the gop's war on voting backfired. you can find tha
that what you say is right on, because being on the ground, everybody underestimated the obama ground campaign and the romney people were calling automatically to say, pick up and support our campaign. the obama campaign had offices in the communities for years and i see that you have not voted. if you go and vote, we will take your name off or find a way to get you to the vote and talking about gop tv and politics and i real iz realized they were getting people to the polls and reaching people personally, al. >> right. let me say this, president obama received 12 million less votes this year than he did in 2008. mitt romney got almost 3 million votes less than john mccain did. this election, and you could come up with a lot of arguments as to why mitt romney didn't win. i thought he left it all on the playing field and he did as well as he could give ten circumstances. but the truth of the matter is that we couldn't come up with enough votes to win. >> patrick, it is not just about the candidate or putting a candidate that has a, you know, hispanic last name or the minority on the ti
to have some pain here for everybody. >> colby? >> this is a show of record. i want to make sure the record is clear on negativity and mitt romney. let us not forget, last summer when the democrats started, we had the republican primary. in that republican primary, the talk about venture capital versus vulture capital? that came from mitt romney. who talked about being picked over by bain capital? rick perry. the talk about weathervane mentality? was that david axelrod? no, that was john huntsman. the republicans laid the groundwork for the work the democrats did. >> mark? >> yes, is there a question? >> no. >> i will respond to it and say when you win, you define the victory. that is the role of american politics. ronald reagan won a lowly landslide with no mandate in 1984. wasn't morning in america? there was a bear in the woods. walter mondale -- and he won 49 states. that is when tax reform became the centerpiece of his administration. >> ok, let's dig into the election. >> whether i have earned your vote or not, i have listened to you, i have learned from you, and you have m
establishment. they lied to the donors. they lied to the base. they lied to everybody about how romney was ahead and things were looking good in the senate. the pollsters -- everybody lied. and so guys keep writing checks and nifind out the reason they went to minnesota and pennsylvania is all these people were saying romney was going to win ohio, they knew he was not going to win ohio. they knew all along. >> you know what i like? i like that the focus is not so much where it is -- and i'm curious to get your view on this -- that it should be on the issues. that you're beginning to have a debate in republican circles not only about where money was spent and when but on issues, for example, on immigration, whether the republicans got it wrong, or this or that spending issue. that's actually healthy. the sooner we get over the tactics of the campaign and we get into whether republicans made a mistake by their embrace of certain issues or certain positions, i actually think that would be a healthy debate for the party and for the country. >> you know, karl rove could have raised another $100 milli
of confronting reality here because it's something empirical. everybody on the right saying the polls are wrong, romney is going to win this election, well, that's something you can't -- we now have evidence, he clearly didn't win, the polls clearly weren't wrong. you have to confront it at a certain point. other issues like global warming and stuff countdoesn't come fac face it. >> it's hard to see the republicans blaming their biggest defeat on their biggest cheerleader. here is david frum. >> conservative followership has been fleeced and lied to. i went to tea party rally and i would ask, have tacks gone up or down in the past four years. they could not answer the question. >> he calls it the conservative entertainment complex but what he's really referring to is talk radio and fox news. now, the audience for those outlets has always been kept in the dark. how come there was no problem with that until now? >> because they lost, and i think what they also are realizing, let's be very honest about what's happened here, if you look at the demographics of this country, the republicans are looki
. to see their take on the big election tuesday. and answering the big question everybody's asking, at dinner last night, carol asked me what's mitt romney going to do next? well, "saturday night live" had mitt romney just wondering about that himself out on the balcony of his home gazing at the stars as one by one his five sons cam came out to ask dad what he's up to next. here he is with son matt. >> hello matt. >> mother sent me to come get you, father. paul ryan is doing beat the strength in the drawing room. >> i would like to see him carry wisconsin. i'm sorry. that was uncalled-for. i'm sorry. >> have you been drinking? you smell like a dairy. >> what do you say you share a drink with your old man. >> father, i'm only 38. >> bill: yeah. mitt romney had a -- he was drinking in fact. he was drinking. he was drinking milk. he was drinking milk from a carton of milk. >> oh, that mormon. >> bill: yeah, we've always suspected he had a drinking problem. so all right. so coming up this hour, joe cirincione
rhetoric do you think one side, does obama seem more likely than romney to solve the problems. >> guest: the coverage has nothing to do with what is going on at all. first of all the plan eliminates all taxes on lap capital and everybody that has 12 and a half million dollars of wealth. and people -- that this is the system that says let's deal for the rich live tax and we are going to further the policy shifting things down and i believe there would lead to wealth and the situation where the entrepreneurial spirit is killed because it's the newcomer but grew up like i did that makes the success of himself and makes the economy grow and we would become like 18th-century france and your economics were determined by who you picked up as your parents, your gender and birth order. obama is actually the most business friendly president in the american history and i realize people were listening to this saying what? 100%. not under obama. 30% bonus for a single year. in the current economic environment it may be to encourage more capital investment. i think we need to discuss whether we want
of the approach you take. this is a country for everybody. not one group or another group. but this is a country for everybody. that's who the republican party has always been. we just need to remember who we are. >> didn't romney 'em base sb-1070? that also alienated hispanic voters. >> i wouldn't be surprised, 2013, comprehensive immigration reform is signed into law by the president of the united states. lindsey graham is at the signing ceremony, chuck schumer obviously is there -- >> donna brazile. i have to say one thing. 28 hispanics will be in congress this coming term, including another hispanic of the united states senate. that's something to celebrate. >> thanks very much. >>> graphic and disturbing images of civil war atrocities raising new questions about syria's forces. arwa dame season on the scene for us. urnlgtsdz humans -- sometimes life trips us up. and sometimes, we trip ourselves up, but that's okay. at liberty mutual insurance we can "untrip" you as you go through your life with personalized policies and discounts when you need them most. just call... and speak with a licens
the problem for them? guest: no. mitt romney went through that primary process like everybody else and state after state republicans voted for him. if they didn't want mitt romney to be that i shall nominee why did they vote for him? only so you can get to the general election and trash him when he loses. that seems stupid to me. so to say mitt romney was the problem. toproblem if you're going point to it is the republicans out here who said this is the guy we want and didn't support him. this is the guy we want but didn't help him get across the line. you can't put this on the shoulder of mitt romney necessarily. how he runs his campaign you can pick at that from here to . there but to say as the nominee he was the problem i think is silly particularly given all the other individuals who were in the race that ran through the primary like he did. he won. host: we'll get to your calls and comments. join us on our facebook page or send us an e-mail or tweet. let's turn to the policy side of this speaker boehner telling the republicans to basically fall in line. he said let john boehner be john
